“Plant Mom” is out via Sonder House: Stream
Multi-talented artist Shareef Keyes and sample-based electronic trio Pool Cosby deliver their new collaborative song and music video, “Plant Mom.” A well-hydrated groovy track, a planthem for the ages, an ode to the mamas with green thumbs, rooms filled with plants, and lots of love, the track is a contender for the song of the summer and a nod to the special plant nurturers in our lives.
Driven by Shareef’s evocative rap-sung verses, the track deploys a bouncy bassline and earworm hook that’ll have you dancing all day, in combination with vibrant funk-leaning synths to provide a club-like feel for the rooftop and dancefloor weekends we’re all needing this summer. Watch the video below.
Sharing on the new single, Shareef states: “During the pandemic, I would scroll through my feed on social media and see all of these beautiful plants being cared for by so many beautiful women. The concept immediately struck me, and I put together the song idea. I sent it over to Pool; they liked where it was going, and the rest was history.”
Pool Cosby adds: “We’ve played a few shows with Shareef over the years and have always wanted to link on some music. The timing finally worked out, and we are excited to hop back in the studio for some more tracks.”
First hitting the scene with his infectiously nostalgic funk album, Cooking Something, singer, rapper, and producer Shareef Keyes makes a welcome comeback following his 2018 project, My Mood. On a mission to become this generation’s undisputed groove king, Keyes has amassed a loyal following online and on-stage due to his standout live performances and memorable vocals. Since emerging, he has toured as a lead artist, played festivals across the U.S., featured on tracks with legends Ghostface Killah and Bun B, tore down the house supporting jazz-funk icon Roy Ayers, and is always focused on changing the game.
As for Pool Cosby, the trio reunites on their first solo release after their 2020 album, Day Breaks. Led by the album’s title track and standout songs, “Back” ft. Soren Bryce and “I Like You” ft. Denitia, the indie-electronic masterpiece, has already accumulated 850K+ streams and widespread praise. Day Breaks builds on their debut album, Blind Gold, with distinctive blends of jazz, hip-hop, pop, and live orchestration. Never ones to settle for good enough, Pool Cosby continues to push the envelope and expand their sound with every release. A sum only as good as its parts – Pool Cosby is Jacuzzi Jefferson, Kevin Kuh, and Otto Botté – a group melding diverse musical and cultural backgrounds with starry-eyed sound exploration.
